Cass Tech sophomore nets first offers

Detroit Cass Tech 2019 wide receiver/safety Jalen Graham talks about his first two offers, plus see highlights from his performance at the Under Armour All-America Camp.

Jalen Graham made noise as a sophomore for Detroit Country Day last fall, and now at Detroit Cass Tech, the class of 2019 wide receiver and safety has had a good spring recruiting wise.

Recently, Pittsburgh and Bowling Green became the first schools to offer him scholarships. With his size (6-3, 190 pounds) and ability to project to either side of the ball, Graham could be a kid who earns many more throughout his recruitment. On Saturday, he was one of the top young performers at the Under Armour All-America Camp in Cincinnati. He impressed as a receiver, but it is not certain that is where he will play come college.

"I talked to Pitt's coach and he is the secondary coach, so he talked to me about safety," Graham said. "The Bowling Green coach talked to me about safety too."

Graham said he has not been to either school, but plans to visit both.

Those being his first offers, Graham will not forget the events of last week.

"It was exciting," he said. "I just got home with my dad and got a text from coach Wilcher. First it was Bowling Green. He told me to call coach and told me the good news. A few hours later, I talked to coach from Pitt and he told me that they were offering me."

Right now, there is one other school beyond those two who is in contact.

"I talk to Michigan State a lot," Graham said, "and I've been up there before."
